Hillhouse Naturals Reed Diffuser Review and Giveaway!


I know it's strange, but I had never used a reed diffuser until a couple weeks ago. That's when Hillhouse Naturals sent me a reed diffuser for review.  I always used candles, and had never even tried a diffuser. Now I'm hooked, though! Hillhouse Naturals sent me the reed diffuser from their Olive Leaf Collection. At first I didn't think that Olive Leaf would really smell that good. I mean, come on...olive leaf? But, as soon as I opened the diffuser, I realized I was mistaken...the Olive Leaf smelled great! It has a beautiful scent that is very unique.  I had planned on putting the diffuser in the living room, but decided to put it in my room instead. That way I can smell it all the time (I know, I'm being selfish :)
Seriously, this is one of those "you-have-to-smell-it-to-believe-it" kind of things!  I am amazed at how quickly the scent spreads throughout the room.  I flip the reeds about once a week, and that keeps my room smelling like fresh, beautiful Olive Leaf at all times!

"A classic beauty from the Mediterranean-ancient home of the olive tree-renewed for the current nature-loving trend. This herbal blend combines fresh, crisp notes of lemon verbena, green olive leaves, petitgrain and cucumber with warm, woody whiffs of patchouli and cedarwood."


The Olive Leaf collection is a new scent for Hillhouse Naturals.  Other scent collections include Bloom, Signature, Cashmere, Fresh Linen, Oceans Edge and Log Cabin (I bet that one smells really good too!)
The collections include candles, potpourri, reed diffusers, and more. There's something for everyone's enjoyment!


"In 1986, Hillhouse Naturals Farm began growing herbs and everlasting flowers on our farm in Kentucky. During the early years we began to make a line of handcrafted gifts such as garlands, wreaths and ornaments inspired by the garden.

In recent years we have expanded our line to produce an ever-growing line of products such as potpourri, candles, sachets, bamboo diffuser reeds, body products and drawer liners. We take pride in the natural quality and individually of our products.

The rich fragrances and textures of our potpourris are substantial in a way that makes most other potpourri mixtures seem bland by comparison. The variety of hearty textures is visually appealing as well as aromatic, with an opulent quality that would satisfy the most discriminating customer.

Our philosophy has always been a simple one: We sell only quality products made with care. If we cannot be proud of the quality, we do not sell the product."

Hillhouse Naturals is giving one of my readers an Olive Leaf Reed Diffuser! So one of you can see (or smell, I guess) what I'm talking about!
